As mentioned in my previous reviews for the inks, Bril inks are one of the most used and admired inks in India. Bril has been in existence since 1964 and are based out of Bangalore in India.The review is about the BRIL LAUREL ROSE which is my second ink review from Bril.
Bril Inks can be purchased from their Webpage as they have launched the webshop recently with nationwide shipping. Bril inks come in following colors:
- Royal Blue
- Laurel Rose
- Turquoise Blue
My earlier Ink reviews are listed as below:
Also I would like to add that i got the inks as a gift from one of my friend and fountain pen enthusiast, Rakshit Pai.
Bril Laurel Rose is a wonderful color ink which comes in 60 ml glass bottle and is priced at Rs. 18 (USD 0.28).
Angled view shows the the sheen ink gives apart from the variation in shades.
DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN
I felt that ink has decent water resistance. As ink did not fade away too much even after running the paper under tap water for complete one minute. Rather paper started to give away but not the Ink.
INK DRYING TIMES
Ink drying times were tested on the Bilt Matrix paper and pen used was Jinhao X-450.
BLOW-UP WRITING SAMPLES
You can see from the above zoomed in writing sample that there is certain bit of shading in the Ink.
I like the pinkish color of Bril Inks.
I have used this ink in lot of pens and have realised that this ink stains the converter but gets washed out after using ammonia flush.
Still i recommend not use this ink in demonstrators.
Must buy at the price.
